COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The truth. You don’t want to hear the truth. The truth’s no longer out there bubba. Just chicken ass lies. Become a Dogma Disciple. Believe in the birds and the bees. Act crazy, be heavily armed at all times and scream in German.

Dogma is an indulgent, decadent and encapsulating scotch ale brewed with 10 different types of malt all blended together with Scottish heather honey. Soak up the sweet nectar like a jackrabbit on heat.

This beer is not cool. You may think it is, but that is just a beautiful lie fabricated by clowns and gypsies.

Emeister84 (1412) - Charlottesville, Virginia, USA - JAN 20, 2013
Aromas of toffee, cherries, and molasses. Brown with golden highlights. Sweet and savory, with some earthy, licorice-like flavors. Medium body, very low carbonation, and finishes sweet but not cloying.

Pours a dark cola colour, with a thin, fast dissipating, off white head. The beer smells of subtle honey and caramel with a ever so slight hint of spice. This beer is so damn malty, as you drink it feels like a new layer of malt is revealed. I can taste the honey, as well as a biscuit flavour in combination with molasses and leather. The mouth feel is pretty special, lots of layers and a long, lingering malt presence. Perfect carbonation for the style - the lack of back end agression allows a nightcap sensibility to shine through.

On the lighter side of the Scotch Ale spectrum, this subtle complex and rather delicious beer almost seemslike a different style of beer. Sweet yet perfectly balanced and integrated with the help of the heather. Soothing and civilised.

O.33L bottle. Dark brown color with small beige top. Bread, raisin and caramel aroma. Sweet kvass at first. Light smoky, very delicious caramel texture. Prune, roasted bread, light coffee flavours. Smoky toffee mouthfeel. Medium bitter finish with nice spices. Very ok drinking.

mario_giri (141) - SWITZERLAND - APR 17, 2015
Fast schwarz, kurzer hellbeiger Schaum. Milde Kaffearomen, ganz wenig Honig, süssliche Hefe. Im Antrunk malzsüsslich, Dörrfrüchte, Kaffe, milde Schoggi, dann kommt eine angenehme Bittere die bleibt, etwas Leder, Holz, begleitet von den anderen Aromen, sehr, sehr fein. Recht vollmundig, cremig und trotzdem spritzig, gut gelungen.

Bottle. Brown color, brown creamy head. Aroma of hazelnut, brown malt and honey. Taste of honey, hazelnut, spice, malts, caramel, anise and butter. Very nice, good scotch.

DominikDraak (6) - Rijeka, CROATIA - APR 14, 2015 does not count
Bottle at home. I waited to try this brew for a few months and I wasn’t disappointed. Pours a dark brown, nearly black with a finger of creamy brown head. Head retention and lacing is poor but it is typical for this kind of beer. Aroma is rich and complex. There is a lot of malt, coffe and chocolate aroma with hints of honey. Body is rich,creamy and oily almost like a coffe. Taste is amazing. It starts sweet with some honey, chocolate,dark fruits, then turns malty and bready and ends with slight bitterness. Everything is followed with a constant light coffe flavour which makes you want more and more. Overall: This is a great complex beer from BrewDog supposed to drink only when you are in mood for something like this.

Bottle. Dark with small tan head. Aroma of chocolate, roasted nuts, malts, some herbs. Taste is honey sweet, chocolate, nuts. Lot of honey and hint of bittery in finish. Medium to full body, creamy texture, flat carbonation. Great beer, well balanced.

Un scotch ale avec du miel! Je n’avais que la MacKroken Flower comme référence. Mais ici, on parle de 10 malts différents. Alors mes papilles devraient en apprendre davantage. Voyons voir... Une robe brunâtre laisse filtrer quelques reflets rubis. Le nez est à la fois fumé et mielleux. En bouche, la bière est... trop froide... je reviens dans 10 minutes. [10 minutes plus tard] HAHAHA, SI VOUS SAVIEZ CE QUI EST S’EST PASSÉ DANS MA VIE AU COURS DES 10 DERNIÈRES MINUTES, VOUS N’EN REVIENDRIEZ PAS! En bout de ligne, j’ai dû partager ma bière avec des quidams trop fiers. J’ai bien aimé le produit. Le contraste sucré / amer est très intéressant. Good stuff all around.

Dark brown colour with a small tan head. Aroma has little presence of chocolate and honey. The taste is the same. Quite good beer.

andriesradu (555) - ROMANIA - APR 5, 2015
Pours dark brown to black with a small white head. Nice aroma which gets more and more complex as it warms up. Roasted malt, chocolate, spicy, some coffee and whiskey/bourbon as it warms enough. Flavor is heavy sweet with notes of roasted malt, some warm alchool, druied fruits. Creamy mouthfeel. Nice
